Employment Opportunity with Mennonite Church Alberta

This half-time position will resource MCA congregations and staff in building interfaith and cross-cultural relationships in their ministry contexts, while representing MCA in other interfaith ventures.

MCA’s Bridge Building program expands the vision first developed through its North Edmonton Ministry of building interfaith and cross-cultural relationships while engaging in faith conversations from a Mennonite perspective. As a historic peace church we desire to reach across the chasms that divide us, witnessing and sharing about our faith with respect and understanding. This work invites us all to be better bridge-builders amongst ourselves and in our own communities.

The Bridge Building Facilitator will collaborate with MCA congregations and MCA Staff to:

1) Explore existing intercultural/interfaith relationships and opportunities;

2) Expand intercultural/interfaith understanding and deepen relationships;

3) Develop intercultural/interfaith intentionality in our worship, invitations, and activities;

4) Capture and share stories to inspire others.

Assets for this role include a good understanding of Anabaptist/Mennonite theology, a post-secondary degree in intercultural studies or other relevant area, excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, including comfort in teaching and public speaking/preaching, and experience navigating intercultural and interfaith relationships. For a full list and other specifics please see the Bridge Building Facilitator job description.
